Bayless measure OK’d, other fails

The majority of Bayless School District voters approved two ballot measures last week, but one passed and one failed due to state law on bond-issue approval.

Voters gave 54.05-percent approval to Proposition S, a 41-cent operating levy.

They also gave 54.36 percent of “yes” votes to Proposition A, a $10 million bond issue, but that failed since it didn’t gain a four-sevenths majority, or 57 percent.

Prop A would have added onto the district’s aging junior high, which has no library or cafeteria. Students have to walk to the high school to find those facilities.
